Half the fun of being a developer is building things just because you can.
Take us, for example.
We have a lab filled with development kits, boards and devices that we can combine for testing and demonstrations. So, when the Developer Relations team asked us to put together a demo that would use LTE, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth low energy (BLE), they didn’t need to ask us twice.
Qualcomm Developer Network January 2019 Developer of the Month is Christian Molson from Klashwerks, located in Ottawa, Canada. Klashwerks develops connected-car technology and has just launched their first product called “Raven”, a connected-car system that lets you see where you're going, where you've been, and how you got there.
Developing for the Internet of Things hinges on the ecosystems, doesn't it?
In most IoT use cases you'll want Wi-Fi for remote control and access to cloud resources like storage, compute, analytics and dashboards. You'll use Bluetooth 5 low energy (BLE) to connect sensors and to set up mesh networks covering large numbers of Things.
Those are very different wireless networking technologies and ecosystems you'll have to accommodate. How many different radios will it take to meet your product requirements? And how are you going to cobble them together?
